There’s nothing wrong with buying a pair of kicks for one particular purpose (e.g., cycling, hiking or playing basketball). But if you’re looking for a sneaker that can handle multiple situations, we’ve got a new one for you: the Pure Boost from adidas. A marvel in simplicity, this is the first collaboration between Y-3 (a.k.a., Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto), adidas Originals and adidas Performance. So it’s a little bit stylish, a little bit classic and a little bit sporty.
Translation: You can wear this shoe anywhere. You could wear it to the bar with jeans. You could wear it to a wedding with a suit. You could wear it to a baseball game with shorts. You could even wear it in the shower. OK, probably not in the shower. But you get the point.
Plus, because it’s made with the same energy-increasing technology found in all of the Boost running shoes, you could also wear it to the gym. In a word: versatile. $120, available May 14, adidas.com and footlocker.com
